It must be a slow day or the summer heat has softened some heads ..... the protests of Paul Mc Cartney's appearance on the Plains of Abraham, is another indication of how desperate some Parti Quebecois'M.N.A.'S are to find some thing, no matter how silly, to rally the scattered and dispirited troops. How dare an " Anglo- Saxon Idol" prance on these sacred grounds? These abandoned children of Mother France, should read their history books and discover the truth about Mama. She preferred to hold on to Guadeloupe and its sugar and give up Quebec and its maple syrup. The British would have preferred Guadeloupe and its lucrative resources and tropical weather, but France ( even unto today prefer the colony of Guadeloupe ) I guess the trauma has strengthened the need to remonstrate when any slight is perceived.
Get a life or even better yet get over it and go and enjoy Sir Paul!!!!!

Personally, that seems pretty petty. I watched the concert last night on tv, and the crowd was going wild! He even did about three encores of at least two songs each. He even wished Quebec happy birthday on several occasions throughout the night. It does a great disservice to Quebequers that M.N.A.'S. feel the need to slash any non purelaine or non-Quebequer from participating in the event... is there not a world outside of this province? He IS a Beatle, after all.
